    “On the Spot: Ross Shanken, Founder of Swimsuit School Day event”

    Why are you wearing your bathing suit?

    Cause it’s swimsuit school day.

    Have you been working out, preparing for this big day, to show off your bod?

    No, no. It’s just Swimsuit School Day. We come to have fun and raise awareness and benefit the Skin Cancer Foundation.

    How come there aren’t any girls out here?

    You know what, they are over there. They are coming down the slip ‘n slide pretty soon.

    What is your favorite slippery activity? Any particular type of slip ‘n slide? Do you like to mix it up with water, soap, mud, foam, shampoo?

    Waterslides, water parks, enough water to slip and slide down it, I’m not too picky with my slip ‘n’ slides.

    What does the “”4-20 holiday”” mean to you?

    April 20 … It’s Skin Cancer Awareness.

    What is your favorite summertime popsicle?

    I’m a big Fudgesicle fan, but I’d say anything fruity. Maybe like a cherry, or a strawberry, anything that gets my lips red.
